. he wants to get past november 6th. cheryl: is susan rice going to make it past november? more talk about her being the next secretary of state. because of what has been supported by the administration did know that was a terrorist attack. >> she needs to explain that. my theory is she was told by the white house congratulations you have drawn the short straw and you are going on a sunday talk shows. otherwise i can't explain why hillary clinton was and they guessed that sunday. she is secretary of state and has the responsibility and yet she was completely invisible. cheryl: a big question here. if it wasn't susan rice as secretary of state who would be? >> i am not sure there are any good candidate in obama's administration but the next most likely candidate is john kerry of the senate foreign relations committee. obama knows him from his time in the senate. he thought he would get it before hillary and it is likely to be one of those two. cheryl: before i let you go, syria. the situation continues to head downhill. will we get any more involvement? the russians are very involved.
